Cashing in! The science of financial gamification

A growing number of fintech firms are harnessing gamification to engage users and help them take an active role in their investments – but what are the risks of using this strategy? Canvas8 spoke to Christoph Hüller to understand the implications of financial gamification on consumers.

Christoph Hüller is a marketing PhD student at the University of Arizona, where he studies consumer psychology, judgement, and decision-making. Much of his work examines consumer risk-taking, wellbeing, and trust. He has presented at conferences such as the Association for Consumer Research and Society for Consumer Psychology, and his research appears in the Journal of the Association for Consumer Research and Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
